Any critique on the photos is very welcome, but also wondered where people stood on rounded corners. I was getting a little carried away in LR :)

Rounded corners remind me of very old photos, but that must just be because we have a lot of photos from years agao with rounded corners...:)

I don't think the rounded corners really add anything. And since they don't add anything, they tend to look gimmicky to me...

They are good for protecting the eyes of little ones who might chew on the photos.

I like all three. Personally I like the rounded corners on these three in this format. For displaying on the web, I think it stands out a little and reminds me more of prints than photos on the web usually do. I think I would loose them for something you were actually going to print, or display very large.


Photography is just a hobby for me.

Rounded corners are a gimmick. Gimmicks can work, but is that what you want to be known for? Then you have to decide on your end usage. It doesnt really work for print, its probably annoying on some web display uses. I dont think it helps your image, but if you are looking for an angle that might be it.

I like them, to me they wax nostalgia. Just don;t do it to all photos, then it is gimmicky.

One suggestion besides the rounded corners (not big fan, but they add a little character) - clean up babies faces.
First one has a couple of pimples and looks a bit reddish to me.

Thanks, might be my 'rosey' processing. But yes maybe I could have considered cleaning up the skin... I could morally be ok with removing temporary blemishes from people I know :)

It would be a 'nice' way of telling my sister her baby wasn't perfect enough ;)
